    well, everyone has enjoyed the playroom. schoolies looked in the cupboards and said "WOW! you do have alot of toys!"

    LOs have explored the sensory tray, doing some lovely sorting, weighing & measuring. the schoolies turned it into a chocolate factory!

    the train track has been all over the floor, the mat has been the sea & we've been fish swimming in it, and we've rowed on it, looking out for that crocodile - then screaming with delight!
